Rice planthopper outbreaks are insecticide-induced.  Research at IRRI and elsewhere have all clearly demonstrated these impacts. Details are summarized in Way and Heong  (1994), Heong and Schoenly (1998), Heong (2009) and Bottrell and Schoenly (2012). All insecticides are biocides acting as neurotoxins interfering with normal physiological functions and thus all animals (including humans) are susceptible to them.

A new study at the James Hutton Institute aims to identify genetic markers for heat stress tolerance that could  help future breeding programs to develop new potato cultivars less susceptible to high temperatures. The study examined the impact of high temperatures following acclimation of mature tuberizing plants to typical and elevated daytime and nighttime temperatures.

US Department of Agriculture scientist Zhulieta Willbrand renewed the bid to push for genetically modified (GM) foods in Kenya, saying they are safe for consumption. She said the foods do not cause any harm if properly handled, and that the improper management of the foods when they are being processed is what makes them dangerous.

British journalist and former anti-GMO activist Mark Lynas is encouraging small-scale farmers in the East African region to plant genetically modified (GM) crops to foster the region's economic growth. According to him, biotech crops are a commercial good and will offer farmers superior harvests and high quality crops.

Global warming is causing apples to lose some of their crunch but is also making them sweeter, a study said Thursday.

Analysing data gathered from 1970 to 2010 at two orchards in Japan, a research team said there was clear evidence that climate change was having an effect on apple taste and texture.
